RC&D pulls together communities, various units of government and grassroots organizations, and helps them establish direction for the local program. Currently, there are 277 (two in New Jersey) authorized RC&D areas serving 2,016 counties in about half of the United States, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Basin. More than 20,000 volunteers annually contribute their time and resources to revitalize and sustain their communities.
